APTOS — The Cabrillo College baseball team allowed one hit after the fifth inning and made a one-run lead stick as it defeated Modesto Junior College 4-3 on Tuesday afternoon.

Cabrillo got all of its runs in the first three innings, including two in the third. On a hit-and-run with one out, Eric Vegas singled to bring home J.Q. Folena and give Cabrillo a 3-2 lead.

Steven Nakahama then walked and got caught stealing while Nick Mac Farland was at the plate. Mac Farland then singled Vegas to third base, bringing up Erick Columbini with a chance to do major damage.

Instead, a double steal was called and executed to perfection. Mac Farland safely got to second, and Vegas raced home to give Cabrillo a 4-2 lead.

Modesto scored a run in the fourth inning to close the game to 4-3. The Cabrillo pitching then put the clamps on the game, allowing two hits the rest of the way.

In the sixth, Cabrillo turned to Julian Garcia to take the mound. He immediately allowed a triple. Garcia shook it off and got an infield fly. Then, Garcia got a line-drive double play to end Modesto’s threat.

Garcia pitched the sixth and seventh, while Matt Deane pitched a perfect eighth. Mike Murano closed out the ninth, not allowing the ball to get out of the infield.
